Living Longer and Living Better

  • Registration Closed

Over the last century, we have almost doubled our lifespan, but not necessarily our healthspan. Research shows that for most seniors, added longevity has resulted in decreased health rather than increased quality of life.

Research also shows that those who live as members of Religious Communities live up to seven years longer than those that do not. So, this begs the question: what can we do, individually and as a community, to improve senior quality of life?

Using current research as a guide, Mr. Norwood will explore why answering this question is more difficult than it appears, and he will offer some ideas for what we can do now to improve the quality of life and health of all seniors.

*This webinar is cosponsored by The National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO).
